A monthly group hosted by Narelle... over HeRe... sees us all being encouraged to make a Christmas item. This month I have an embroidered Christmas Tree with gifts underneath.
Unfortunately as it's a gift I won't show you what I did with it just yet.
Gotta LoVe keeping secrets for months... NoT...
Anyways, why not click on over to the blog to see what other crafter's made this month.
It's very simply... just click HeRe.

Thanks Narelle... it's always a FuN time of the month.

AlmoST a NeiGHBouRHooD

I am in a "House & Garden" block swap with 11 ladies from our guild.
Each block had to measure 8 1/2 inch unfinished but could be any design or interpretation that you considered suited the theme. The blocks could be pieced, embroidered or appliqued... or any combination. I chose to appliqué... using my favourite method... blanket stitch edged.
All 10 blocks were to be the same but the colours could change.
Here are my 10 blocks...

Let's BooK It AGaiN

I have linked this post to Sharon at Vroomans Quilts... over HeRe.
Sharon hosts us monthly in this Let's Book It group. It really helps me to use patterns I've collected but just never get to... & this month is no different.
I used a free pattern from "" although I added another row to make it longer. My baby play rug finished at 36 inch x 45 inches. It has lots of ribbons for sensory development... & you can also add a rattle or soft toy to any of the ribbons as well.
DD2 gave it to her work colleague & new baby boy & they both think it's wonderful... so I'm a HaPPy SeWeR.

I used stash fabric for this play rug so I've added another project to my
2016 Scrap Busting Challenge list as well.

WooHoo... I'm loving this personal challenge...
